In a joint statement, Chairman of the Board Richard D. Wellbrock and President & CEO Mortimer J. O'Shea commented: "Our first quarter results reflect a tightened net interest margin and a discretionary increase in our loan loss provision. In addition, the FDIC has imposed a significantly higher assessment on depository institutions to pay for the losses to the Deposit Insurance Fund incurred when several large thrift institutions failed in the current recessionary environment. Although Hilltop did not participate in subprime lending, we are not immune from the impact of those reckless practices. However, Hilltop's loan portfolio remains strong, and we believe that we are well reserved as we deal with the second year of the global economic crisis. As higher rate certificates of deposit mature and are repriced at today's lower rates, we expect to see an improvement in our net interest margin in the second quarter and for the rest of 2009. We are very pleased that our commercial lenders are seeing some new opportunities for loans and we hope to see improved loan growth in the near future."
